30hands app for storytelling and presentation

Different from other presentation apps, 30hands Mobile focuses on the power of storytelling. Like pages in a book, photos or images are dragged around the desktop into the order of the story. Next, the teacher or student records audio over each image. Finally, the story or presentation can be published to the device’s photo area or uploaded to a 30hands collaborative learning site.

Wow -- the title sounds like such a downer. And at first glance, it seems this article has nothing to do with storytelling.


Oh, but it does. For years I've been advocating that businesses craft their future story. This is about how you and your customers -- by being in a commercial relationship together -- are positively impacting the world. This could also be a personal story about what you as an individual are doing today to create a better world tomorrow.


I've noticed that many people have a hard time thinking this way. Yet your Future Story is a key driver in building loyalty and sales.


This article -- while never mentioning storytelling -- begins to show us how profound this Future Story can be, and how necessary it is today.


Philosophers in this article weigh in on what needs to be part of our Future Stories. Qualities like: temperance, mindfulness, considering upcoming generations, cooperation, and cradle-to-grave product/service attributes. These are all pieces of Patagonia's business stories. So examples of this kind of Future Story work is out there.


The best way to read this article is to do so through the question of, "What do I need to know about the Anthropocene Age and its dilemmas to craft my Future Story?"


The answers are there. Read the article and let your mind contemplate this as you go through your week. I'm fascinated to hear what you come up with.

There are millions of teachers on social media right now. They discuss professional, personal, and cultural things on a daily basis. But what are the best ways to make the most of your time on social networks?

There are some great ways to really grow your professional learning network, discover new lesson ideas, and take your teaching to the next level.

However, there are more than a few ways to incorrectly use social media if you’re a teacher (or any professional for that matter). Below are just a few best practices to keep in mind as you embrace the brave new world of social media for teachers.

The Key to story structure in two words: Therefore & But | immersive media | Scoop.it
There are a ton of storytelling-related books and websites in the cosmos. And there is no shortage of people giving story advice and tips. Much of the advice is helpful, but the enormous volume of information related to writing or telling better stories can be overwhelming. Therefore, when someone credible comes along who offers free, insanely simple yet effective advice for improving one's story, he will find a very large audience indeed. This is exactly what happened just a few years ago, all quite by accident it would seem.

Avoiding "Learned Helplessness" | Andrew Miller | Edutopia.org

Avoiding "Learned Helplessness" | Andrew Miller | Edutopia.org | immersive media | Scoop.it

We all have students that just want to "get it right." We all have students that constantly seek the attention of the teacher. "Did I get this right?" "Is this what you want?" Now while it's certainly a good thing to affirm students in their learning, many times we want students to be creative with their learning. We allow them to own their learning and create assessment products where they can show us what they know in new and inventive ways. Because of this, there isn't "one right answer," yet our students are often trained to think that there can be only one.

Similarly, we want students to be reflective, to ask themselves, "How do I know if I'm on the right track?" or "What could I do next?" Instead of coming immediately to the teacher, we want students to experiment on their own. Many of us wonder why students constantly do the opposite instead. I've got news for you. It's our fault. We, as educators, are often responsible for learned helplessness, and we have a responsibility to change it! How can we empower our students to be self-directed learners?

World of Warcraft halted an army of cheaters with a massive player ban | Abby Ohlheiser | WashPost.com

World of Warcraft halted an army of cheaters with a massive player ban | Abby Ohlheiser | WashPost.com | immersive media | Scoop.it

A "large number" of cheating World of Warcraft players were banned from the popular game for six months for using "bots" that allow players to automate some of their play, the popular game's maker announced this week.

Although Blizzard Entertainment's statement on the ban didn't include an exact figure, it's possible that more than 100,000 players are on an involuntary vacation from World of Warcraft. That number comes from a conversation between one player and a Game Master, an in-game employee of Blizzard. A Blizzard spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

What is clear from Blizzard's statement, however, is that many of the banned users were using the World of Warcraft equivalent of performance-enhancing drugs: "bots."

"We've recently taken action against a large number of World of Warcraft accounts that were found to be using third-party programs that automate gameplay, known as 'bots,'" the statement reads. "We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in World of Warcraft, and will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use. Cheating of any form will not be tolerated."

The statement also encourages people who spot other players using a "bot, exploit, or cheat" in violation with the game's terms of service to report them to Blizzard.

Slideshare is the digital storytelling secret weapon

Slideshare is the digital storytelling secret weapon | immersive media | Scoop.it

In my estimation, the reason why more experienced social media marketers gravitate toward Slideshare is that they eventually recognize that social media is about actions, not eyeballs. The “reach” offered by the larger consumer-oriented platforms is seductive, but if only a tiny percentage of your fans are seeing your posts in those venues, is the reach really reliable?

Slideshare’s audience is bigger than you might think, is terrific for lead generation, and is populated by people actively seeking information and resources (not dissimilar from a search engine, in that regard).

And that audience is hungry for information. It’s not uncommon to generate significant views and downloads for Slideshare presentations, including 24,000+ and counting for my presentation on reliable reach....

Storybird: 2014-2015 Edu Year in Review | immersive media | Scoop.it

 

Earlier in the year we sent a note to the educators who use Storybird with this message: you are lovely and amazing. You invested your trust in us, built us into your curriculum, shared us with educators around the world, and most importantly, put us on your shoulders and gave us the opportunity to reach even higher in our mission to inspire a new generation of writers and readers.

We’ve always known that teachers and librarians are core to our success and crucial to our mission. But it wasn’t until we crunched the numbers that we really understood just how amazing our community of educators truly is.

Here’s an end-of-the-school year snapshot of what the millions of students, classrooms, and educators who use Storybird Studio achieved in 2014-2015. It’s more Year-in-Review than report card (we trust you’ve had enough of those by now), and quite frankly, it knocked our socks off.

CA: Cardinal Studios seeks to combat lack of on-campus film production | Will Ferrer | Stanford Daily | immersive media | Scoop.it

You come to Stanford to play football. You come to Stanford to study computer science. You come to Stanford to be the next big thing in Silicon Valley.


You do not come to Stanford, however, to make films.


It’s an unfortunate truth, though one that has always been reflected in the construction of the University’s recently conceived Film and Media Studies program.


Launched back in 2005 by Kristine Samuelson, then-director of Stanford’s renowned graduate department for documentary filmmaking, the goal of Stanford’s Film and Media Studies program is not, nor was it ever, to provide students with a complete education in film and video production.


“This won’t be USC North,” said Samuelson in a 2005 Art History newsletter describing her original vision for the university’s first curriculum for the study of film. “In addition to fundamentals in film and video production, our majors will delve into cinema history, narrative analysis and screenwriting, film criticism and aesthetics, and film and media theory.”


The newsletter also described the University’s desire to oversee the development of an MFA program, which would be launched in autumn of 2006, the following year. This program, which would be grounded in production and would provide undergraduate students with the chance to engage with graduate-level fiction filmmakers, never came to fruition.


Jumping to the present day, Stanford’s film and media studies program is currently fully operational. With a staff that includes Professor Scott Bukatman, Associate Professors Jean Ma and Pavle Levi, Senior Lecturer Adam Tobin, and Lecturers Laura Green and J. Christian Jensen, Stanford’s young film program has just begun to find its feet. Yet, despite the program’s successful inception, the department continually struggles to meet student demand for production-based coursework.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:46 AM

Gifted children often display their gifted talents in different areas.  Some children are gifted in science, others in math, others in music...and some show extraordinary talents in several areas. It is not the label that is placed on the child's ability, but what is done to develop and support that ability. The enrichment and challenge that is provided at home and in school can raise the demonstration of talent to high levels - however, this enrichment and challenge must be coupled with the social and emotional support that develops a life-long learner.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 30, 9:51 AM

Gifted education often talks about the twice-exceptional learner - one whose intellectual gifts are coupled and often masked by a learning disability.  There is also a phenomena of the gifted student who lives in a state of poverty.  Often trapped in a high poverty school that focuses on remediation and intervention.  Poverty schools must embrace a growth mindset about students, believing that every student can develop their gifts and talents.  They must differentiate the learning experiences that provide pathways for students to access deeper learning with complex thinking within the content.  This is a tall order for teachers who are burdened with learning gaps, behavior problems, and social issues...but with over 50% of our students living in poverty, we cannot afford to miss the development of the gifts and talents that lie buried under poverty.
